"There will also be some additional rain Wednesday morning, but nothing as heavy as the showers that rolled through Tuesday afternoon," said Local 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells.  "Don't look for much of a warm up on your Wednesday."

The high will struggle to reach 60 degrees in Orlando, he added.

Wednesday night, the cold air combined with clear skies will lead to overnight lows in the 30s.

The low in Orlando will drop to 35 degrees.

"Thursday, things do not improve. It will remain windy and cold, with a high of only 55," Sorrells said.

The overnight low Thursday night into Friday morning will drop to 33 in Orlando. In Ocala, the low will crash into the 20s. Expect widespread freeze issues and lots of frost on Friday morning.

On Friday, we make it back to a high of 58 degrees. Friday night the low will fall back to 45.

High temperatures bounce back to normal on Saturday, with a high of 74.

On Sunday, the high will rocket to almost 80.
